    Friends: The One About “The Last One”

    When the series finale of Friends aired on May 6, 2004, a reported 52.5 million tuned in to watch it live. Not counting anything having to do with the Super Bowl, no episode of scripted television has attracted close to that amount since, and it’s been twenty years. Also, it’s important to repeat that 52.5 […] More

    The Sarah Connor Chronicles Was the Best T2 Sequel

    I was privileged to watch the first episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles when I attended my first and only Comic-Con in the summer of 2007. The show seemed interesting enough. I was a fan of the Terminator films, but I cannot overstate how little of a chance I originally gave this show. Let […] More

    The following contains spoilers for Westworld S4E6 “Fidelity” (directed by Andrew Seklir and written by Jordan Goldberg & Alli Rock) Westworld S4E6 “Fidelity” digs deeper than I thought the show would go in its focus on who exactly suffers when the “bad guys” win.

    The following contains spoilers for Westworld S4E4 “Generation Loss” (directed by Paul Cameron and written by Kevin Lau & Suzanne Wrubel) S4E4 of Westworld is not playing around. “Generation Loss” could’ve worked as a season finale.

    The following contains spoilers for Westworld S4E1, “The Auguries” (written by Lisa Joy & Will Soodik and directed by Richard J.
